Podcast: James Wates CBE, Chairman, Wates Group


Recent regulatory changes require large private companies to disclose more information about their corporate governance arrangements.

Listen to a 20-minute EY podcast with James Wates CBE from the Wates Group, Mala Shah-Coulon from EY and Elizabeth Bagger for Institute for Family Business, for their insights and guidance.

Topics of discussion include:

  • The scope of the new regulations
  • How to articulate governance arrangements
  • Leading practices on purpose and stakeholder engagement
  • Practicalities of reporting.

In December 2018, a new code for the corporate governance of large private companies was launched to provide a framework to help not only meet legal requirements, but to promote long term success in this vital sector.
